Kyrgyzstan is one of the countries with the fastest growing HIV epidemics in the last decade. Injecting drug use is the primary driver of HIV infection, with more than 50% of HIV infections occurring among this group. ITPC initiated ‘Missing The Target’ (MTT); a community-led research project aimed at assessing the status of HIV treatment access among people who inject drugs (PWID) in Kyrgyzstan. Recommendations of this project were key in the development of the national action plan to increase adherence to HIV treatment for 2018 – 2021. Kyrgyzstan is now the first country in the EECA region with a nationally approved human rights-based adherence improvement plan.
